Maninkoura Irrigated Scheme Development (PAPIM) Project consists of the development of the Maninkoura Plains through the harnessing of the water resources of the Sankarani river, regulated by the Sélingué dam. It falls under the Government's strategy and rural development policy which aims at developing 13,000 hectares under total water control by 2002. This development of the Maninkoura Scheme (1,094 ha) concerns the communities of Maninkoura and neighbouring villages comprising about 15,000 people nearly 4,400 of whom live in Maninkoura. On the whole, 2,188 farm plots of 0.50 ha each will be developed. The implementation of the project should entail: (i) construction of irrigation infrastructure through pumping from the Sankarani minor bed, (ii) accommodating activities aimed at promoting the rural world and notably women on the basis of a participatory approach and (iii) organization and coordination of project activities. The project is made up of three components: A) Development Works; B) Rural Development; and C) Project Management.
The sector goal of the Maninkoura Irrigated Scheme Development Project is poverty reduction in the Maninkoura area. The project objectives comprise increase in agricultural output, development of rural economic activities, notably those of women and environmental protection.
The main beneficiaries of the project are the populations of the Maninkoura and Sélingué zones.
